Presented by:
Rosaura Orengo-Aguayo, PhD
Assistant Professor and Clinical Psychologist, Medical University of South Carolina

Clinical psychological science has developed efficacious treatments for emotional and behavioral difficulties encountered by children and adolescents, but most of the studies have been conducted by American, university-based research labs. This presentation will describe the implementation of Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) in 3 separate low-resourced settings (rural South Carolina, Puerto Rico, and El Salvador) utilizing the Exploration, Preparation, Implementation, and Sustainment (EPIS) framework and guided by a community-based participatory research framework for cultural and contextual adaptation.

This Advocacy & Allyship Series program is presented in partnership with the Roblee Foundation; Institute for Public Health’s Center for Human Rights, Gender and Migration; the Brown School’s Office of Global Programs, Clark-Fox Policy Institute, and the Social Policy Institute.
